Five Roads, Llanelli

The communities of Cynheidre, Five Roads, Horeb and Sylen have witnessed rapid population, social and economic changes over the past 40 years. Among many other things, we have seen the closure of Cynheidre colliery and one of our local chapels; replacement of the railway with a cycle path; the building of new housing and an influx of new residents.

In January 2011, at the funeral of one of the community’s last ‘characters’, a suggestion was made that the rich heritage of the locality should be written down and celebrated before being forgotten in the face of these changes. This led to the formation of the Five Roads & District Heritage Society whose inaugural meeting was held on 28th June 2011. This website shows some of what we have done since then as well as what we plan to do.
If you are not already involved, a warm welcome awaits you.
